As Iff walked into the halls of 
Kempsville Jr. High School for the 
first time this year, we couldn't help 
but look back on the fun of June, July, 
and August and take a deep sigh. It 
was hard to believe that the last sunny 
afternoons of our summer had finally 
come. The sun had set on the carefree 
days of summer, but in our minds the 
sun was rising on a new horizon. 

As we took our first steps into the 
building, we covered more than just a 
few inches. We took on responsibility 
just by being there. From now on we 
would have to think about doing 
homework, talking to that special per- 
son in the hall, finding a place to sit in 
the crowded cafeteria, making the 
team, and keeping up with our federal 
cards and yearbook receipts. 

Before the first day, everyone had 

compared schedules with friends; our 
worn, folded copies could hardly be 
read as we tried to use them to find our 
way to first bell on September 7th. We 
spent the first days of school becoming 
acquainted with teachers and fellow 
students, learning to open our lock- 
ers, listening to what seemed like 
hundreds of rules, figuring out where 
health class met on Monday, and de- 
ciding if we should eat hamburgers or 
chicken filet sandwiches. 

Even though we had to say goodbye 
to the free time of summer, most of us 
looked forward to a time of responsi- 
bility. As our time began in Septem- 
ber, we couldn't help but hope that we 
could make it what it should be, what 
we knew it would be — precious 
time, indeed. 

Summer ends and school begins.

"Spare time" for the involved 
students of KJHS was very rare. 
The day to day routine was filled 
with club meetings and activities, 
extra-help sessions or reviews for 
hard subjects, six fifty-minute 
classes, and a thirty-minute lunch. 
As the 3:45 p.m. bell rang, the halls 
filled as students spread in all direc- 
tions. Some remained at school for 
practices while others went home to 
participate in family or community 
activities, or to begin an evening of 
studying and waiting for the phone 
to ring. 

As the weekends arrived, this 
meant a little more spare time for 
everyone. There were many activi- 
ties in which to participate. In the 
stands or on the bleachers were the 
places to be during the sports' sea- 
sons; then on to Milton's to eat and 
talk about the game or just about the 
happenings of the week. 

Parties or dances offered an 
alternative to the weekend scene. 
This included school dances, club 
activities, and parties held by stu- 
dents looking to spend time with 
friends. Many students also spent 
some of this spare time at the area 
malls, cinemas, and game rooms. 

Even though spare time for 
Kempsville students has been rare, 
they have made the most of every 
minute. Fortunately for everyone, 
there were only twenty-four hours 
in a day, and a few had to be spent 
recuperating before the Monday 
morning routine began again.

"Kempsville." To hear that word 
gives us a real sense of pride. Its 
meaning remains the same through- 
out the years of going to classes, 
attending sports events, and partici- 
pating in varied activities. A walk 
down the tired halls can say more to 
the mind than the one hundred and 
eighty days of learning and living. To 
see the smiling faces and the joy in our 
eyes is to know the pride of Braves. To 
feel sadness when you realize that the 
doors are locked, the halls are empty, 
and the good times seem gone forever, 
is to remember all that has been a part 
of life at KJHS for us. Do they call it 


With each year its meaning grows. 
The present rapidly turns to gold dust 
of the past, and the future lies ahead of 
us as a magic blue mist, a gold and 
blue picture with accents of teardrops 
and laughter. In class, on the playing 
field, at a club meeting, marching in 
the band, or just relaxing after 3:45 
p.m., being from Kempsville is some- 
thing to be proud of. This love runs 
deeper. As the blue mist we saw in 
September turns overnight to gold 
dust, we look back and smile. ]Ne 
think of that golden dust and all that 
we have to be proud of. This is called 
"Brave Pride."

The past year at Kempsville 
brought many memories for all. Good 
or had, they are indeed memories 
shared with close friends. Never again 
will we experience a year quite like 
this one. The memories made this year 
are special because this could be the 
last time we are all gathered in the 
same school. The talk of rezoning has 
been a topic of discussion for the 
citizens of the Kempsville area for 
several years, but the possibility of 
this becoming a reality during the 
1982-83 school year has caused con- 
cern for Ke7npsville parents, students 
and school faculty . This change could 
forever alter the path ready to be taken 
by all of us to Kempsville High School. 

Now is when we can look back and 
remember the times that we all shared. 
Tor example, remember the time you 
asked that special person for a date and 
she said, "yes," or how about the time 

you had cafeteria duty because you 
dropped your napkin? YJe all remem- 
ber the great feeling of winning the big 
game or the disappointment of losing 
when we had tried so hard. Remember 
the time your locker jammed because 
six people shared it and also the time 
you missed your bus because you were 
waiting to pass that note that you 
wrote in sixth bell? Ah7iost everyone 
has experienced the embarrassment of 
being called on in class and not being 
able to answer. 

These memories will linger on, long 
after we are out of school. As we all 
look back on the year, everyone will 
have his own special times to remem- 
ber. Whether they were made in or 
outside of school, they will always be 
deeply cherished by each of us. No 
matter what path we all take, hopeful- 
ly there will be times when we can look 
back and say, "Remember the time." 

. . . when we were rising up to meet 
the challenge of our rival as Bobby 
caught the pass to score the winning 
touchdown, and Karen and 
Stephanie led the cheerleaders at the 
fall sports pep rally.

The Venture Staff makes the best of spare 
time even at five in the morning. 

It seems like only yesterday that we were 
arriving for the first day of school. 

14 / Beginnings 


What is time? The dictionary de- 
fines time as, "all of the days there 
have been or ever will be; the past, 
present and future. " Our school year 
was "time" — The time yesterday 
when we first ventured into our school 
to start a new year. Much of our past 
is made up of time spent with old 
friends and the excitement of making 
new ones. The classes, the teachers, 
and the activities made the year spe- 
cial. — The time today when we sit 
here, read the yearbook, and reminese 
about yesterday, we look back on the 
past, laughing at all of the good times, 
and looking forward to the end of 
school. — And the time tomorrow 
when all of this will be behind us and 

we will start a new yesterday, today 
and tomorrow. 

Time is always moving, and its 
passage sometimes seems too slow or 
too fast. It moves fast when we are 
enjoying ourselves and it moves slozv- 
ly when we are bored. Busy times and 
happy moments spent with our 
friends speed by, while times with noth- 
ing to do or minutes spent in your 
not-so-favorite class seem to drag. 
Someday s the classes flew by, while 
other days the hands on the clock 
seemed to move so slowly. 

Time flies; our time is over now; 
let's hope that all of our future times 
will be as good as the times spent at 
KJHS during 1982-83.

Many times it is difficult to describe 
the student body of a school. No one 
phrase can picture in words what the 
student body of KJHS is like. It is 
made up of more than 1600 people 
with varied goals, interests, and 
accomplishments. Each and everyone 
of them is different in many ways, but 
they all have something in common, 

The 7th grade population at KJHS 
feeds in from two elementary schools, 
Kempsville Meadows and Providence 
Elementary. These people make up a 
very small part of our student body, 
but are a very important part because 
of their enthusiasm and participation 
in many activities. 

The 8th grade population is made 
up of the 7th graders moving from 
Kemps Landing and the returning 7th 
graders from KJHS. Since some of the 
students are new to the school, adjust- 
ments had to be made, but they quick- 
ly learned and become a united class. 

Most of the 9th graders at KJHS 
have spent at least two years becoming 
friends and developing common in- 
terests and goals. They are the "Brave 
Pride" going ever on. 

The fact that all students take the 
same path from junior high to high 
school — from Kempsville Jr. High 
to Kempsville High — contributes 
to the unity of "Kempsville" that 
everyone is so proud of. As you look 
through this section you will see the 
people that make up our student body. 
None of them are alike but they all 
share a certain pride in being a part of

It seems hard to believe that our last year at 
KJHS has passed by so quickly. Some of us 
started junior high in seventh grade and some 
in the eighth, but this mattered little when we 
came together as one class — The class of '86. 

The Freshmen have led the student body of 
KJHS with spirit and pride. The year was 
very successful with the majority of the class 
participating in numerous school activities. 
When the year came to a final and sad close, 
many of us were lost and left idle without club 
meetings, band practice, and sports events to 

Though it may be difficult, we must now 
realize mat it is time to move on. Attending 
KJHS has become a vital part of our lives and 
it will be hard to accept something new. Be- 
coming sophomores at a new school and 
adapting to unfamiliar surroundings will put 
us at the bottom of the ladder once again. 

As we look forward to moving on, we will 
never leave behind the memories made at

Time and time again during the school 
year, the eighth graders at KIHSplayed a key 
role in developing Brave pride and spirit. 
Whether studying in the library, participat- 
ing in a variety of classroom activities, work- 
ing hard on a practice field, marching in the 
band, or attending a club meeting, we met the 
challenge of demonstrating our abilities and 
enthusiasm to everyone at our school. 

This was the first year that the class of '87 
attended school together. The majority of the 
class came from Kemps Landing to join the 
group of students who attended KJHS in the 
seventh grade. The two groups began to func- 
tion as one, and the eighth graders began to 
share a unique combination of abilities and 
interests with their teachers and fellow stu- 
dents. We were involved in student life and 
had a very good year in the middle. 

As the 1982-'83 year comes to an end, the 
class of '87 can look back on a very successful 
year. It was a time to develop pride in our 
class and to look forward to 1983-84: — when 
there would be time again to show that 
Kempsville Braves are #i.

The c/flss 0/ '58 enfereif f/ie /ifl//s of KJHS 
for the first time in September. Most of us 
began to look forward to the "first day" when 
we received our schedules in mid-August. 
When the first day finally rolled arouna, the 
fear of not being accepted at a much larger and 
unfamiliar school was present in all of our 

As our first few days at KJHS passed by, we 
realized how different junior high was from 
any other school we had ever attended, this 
was the first time we were left on our own and 
given freedom which allowed us to grow and 
become more responsible. This new indepen- 
dence was a pleasant surprise for all of us, so 
we were able to adapt to seventh grade life 
with ease. 

Though most of the year we were busy just 
observing the different ways of life at junior 
high, we did begin getting involved in activi- 
ties outside of our classes. Despite the fact 
that many of us were afraid to become in- 
volved too quickly, we gained experience in 
classes, activities, and sports; and began set- 
ting goals and priorities for the future. Build- 
ing on everything we have learned this year, 
we can look forward to two more years of 
^ success at KJHS.

Did you sleep late on the morning 
your class picture was supposed to be 
taken? Did you cross your eyes and 
stick out your tongue when con- 
fronted by the camera the fourth time 
your picture was made up? If so, you 
might be a missing person. Even 
though some students have been re- 
ported as missing from the class pic- 
tures section of the yearbook, they 
have been spotted in the halls of KJHS 
taking active and important roles in 
classes of '86, '87, and '88. Therefore, 
this page of the yearbook has been de- 
voted to recognizing them.

That is exactly what the staff of 
KJHS is always striving for. They 
have put in a great deal of Hme during 
this year to help students see the light 
at the end of the tunnel and to aid 
them in accomplishing many goals 
and crossing obstacles in their path. 
Not only have students at KJHS ex- 
perienced many frustrating, yet chal- 
lenging moments, but so have the staff 
members. Some days seemed as if they 
would never end — the ones that 
started when they left the day's test in 
the glove compartment and locked the 
keys in the car; and ended when they 
had spent hours slaving over forms 
that seemed not to have even a remote 
relation to students or to teaching. 

As instructors, disciplinaries, and 
often as friends, the staff members 
have helped inspire and push students 
toward excellence. Many faculty 
members served as coaches and club 
sponsors. Recognizing the extreme 
importance of activities outside the 
classroom, these teachers remained at 
school long after classes had ended. 
Many of the staff members at Kemps- 
ville Jr. also realize the importance of 
school spirit and are enthusiastic and 
supportive fans. They are found in the 
crowd at many of the games cheering 
loudly for our team. 

As the year comes to a close, the 
KJHS staff looks back and asks, "Was 
it all worth it?" Then they smile and 
know that it was when they realize 
that there is learning going on here — 
and teaching. In fact, sometimes there 
is teaching by the learners and learn- 
ing by the teachers. This is what it's 
all about. We call it "education."

This year the KJHS art department c^SIsts^J 
two teachers with Mrs. Ratliff acting as chairman. 
The art program seeks to aid the student in de- 
veloping a heightened awareness of self, a sensitiv- 
ity to the environment, and an ability to express 
himself visually. Other goals of the department are 
to develop an ability to think creatively, and to help 
students gain a knowledge of cultural heritage. Art 
students complete a variety of projects which are 
often displayed for everyone at KJHS to enjoy and

The English department at KJHS is made up of 
seventeen teachers headed by Miss Bryant, depart- 
ment chairman. There are course offerings in En- 
glish, public speaking, drama, and developmental 
and corrective reading for all levels of ability. En- 
glish courses include literature, monologues, basic 
language skills, and styles and techniques of writ- 
ing. The primary concern of the drama program is 
to provide students with a foundation of basic 
skills and experiences in the performing arts. The 
courses in developmental reading provide stu- 
dents with reading skills necessary to funchon in 
today's society.

The Special Education Department here at KJHS 
is made up of seven very "special" people. There 
are five teachers along with two full tune aides. Mr. 
Wright holds the position of department head. The 
special education department ranges from 
teaching all subjects to very specialized problem 
areas. This program allows the student to adapt his 
schedule to meet special needs. It helps "lift the 
load" of five or six full time classes. The teachers 
work closely with the student to develop such 
things as survival skills and perceptual skills in- 
cludmg working on personal awareness. Special 
Education is an "intensive skill developmental 
class," which can act as a friend in a time when 
help is what a student needs. 

Reading is fundamental to all areas of leariung. 
Here at KJHS Mrs. Cade is our reading resource 
teacher and is ably aided by Mrs. Morgan. The 
purpose of this program is to develop reading skills 
and to enable the student to apply these skills in 
each of his classes.

The Kempsville Junior music department em- 
ploys three teachers who provide quality' instruc- 
tion in the areas of musical score interpretation, 
performance, aesthetic descrimination, and htera- 
ture explanation on beginning, intermediate, and 
advanced levels. 

The band instructor, Mr. Forbes, has a Bachelor 
of Science degree from Norfolk State University 
and a masters degree from Columbia University. 
Mr. Forbes has taught at KJHS for eight years and 
enjoys listening to jazz. He plays most of the in- 

The choral instructor, Mrs. Leiderman, studied 
at the University of Maryland where she attained a 
Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education, 
and at Norfolk State University where she was 
presented with a Masters of Music degree. She has 
taught jointly at Kempsville Jr. and Woodstock 
Elementary for the past two years, so she is familiar 
with the busy routine most Braves have. Our chor- 
al director is a very talented lady. In her spare rtme, 
she plays the piano and sings. 

Directing our orchestra is Mrs. Price. She also 
works at KempsLanding and Brandon Jr. High 
during the day. She graduated from ODU with a 
degree in business education. Besides teaching, 
Mrs. Price has many musical talents which include 
playing the oboe, the piano, and the violin.

Here at Kempsville Jr. our computer courses are 
taught by Mrs. Cox. The computer awareness unit 
is a fifteen day multi-media course of instrucHon 
involving hands-on operation of a microcomputer; 
knowledge of hardward and software; applicatton 
of the uses of computers; past, present, and future 
effects of computers on our lives; simple program- 
ming techniques; and some history of the develop- 
ment of computers. 

The hands-on operation of a computer (TRS-80 
111) is a very important aspect of the unit. Each 
student learns how to use the keyboard to enter 
commands to the computer and make it do what- 
ever they want (almost). 

Presentations are made showing students the 
many applications of computers from the way they 
are used in the classroom to huge complexes called 
computer or data centers that have systems that 
can help run an entire city. 

How the computer affects our lives is discussed 
in the course, "Wherever man goes. Computers 
surround him." All of the effects were not neces- 
sarily good. Indeed, students saw that our privacy 
could be in jeopardy. However, students con- 
cluded that overall the computer makes life better 
for most of them. In any case, the computer is with 
them and students must learn how to live with it. 

Students also take a look at the history of the 
development of computers from primitive devices 
using knots tied in strings to modern electronic 
computers capable of sending a space probe to a 
distant planet. 


The purpose of the in-school suspension pro- 
gram is to provide an education for those students 
who are suspended from their classes. The ISS 
coordinator, Mr. Flanigan, gives these students 
assignments which are individualized to suit their 
particular need. In order to do this, he obtains 
assignments and information about the student's 
abilities from their teachers. 

Mr. Flanigan has been the ISS coordinator for 
two years. He taught Health and P.E. for nine 
years, and was department chairman for two 
years. He has also taught at Heritage Elementary. 
A graduate of ODU and Ferum College, Mr. Flani- 
gan also has a masters degree from ODU. 

An active member of the faculty, Mr. Flanigan is 
the assistant coach of the football team. He has also 
coached basketball at KJHS. Mr. Flanigan's hob- 
bies are golf and wood-working. He has two 
daughters, Charlotte and Libby, who is the mascot 
of the KJHS cheerleaders. 


The Gifted and Talented Programs here at KJHS, 
provide a variety of offerings designed to meet the 
educational needs of intellectually gifted and 
talented students. This program offers advanced 
courses, credit and non-credit, and special semi- 
nars. Qualified students may register for the 
course in the seventh, eighth, or ninth grade, and 
have the opportunity to select program offerings 
that meet their individual needs. The course in- 
structors are Juanita Felton, Mary Hughes, and 
Hazel Jessee. The instructional units include En- 
glish, in which students write stories and produce 
filmstrips, sUdes and tapes of stories; Science, in 
which students examine and analyze visual illu- 
sions, magic tricks, codes, and conduct several 
experiments; Social Studies, where students in- 
vestigate the community, school, and personal 
actions; and finally the arts, in which the class 
studies three periods of fine arts.

Council, and serves as a member of the Virginia 
Beach School Board. He is actively concerned with 
increasing the educational facilities for every stu-

Dr. E.E. BrickeU 


The administration of a school is its backbone, its 
central support. It must possess wisdom, power, 
and decisiveness, as well as understanding and 
fairness in setting its goals and forming its policies. 
Our administration certainly met these standards 
of leadership and worked hard to provide the stu- 
dent body and faculty with the direction it needed. 

Under the direction of the principal, Jefferson 
Davis, Kempsville Jr. High School strives to main- 
tain its standards of scholarship and athleHcs. He 
insists upon an informal, but disciplined atmo- 
sphere and is always accessible to students and 

Mr. Davis attended the Old South Norfolk High 
School and he served over seas in the 15th Air 
Force in World War two. He went to law school at 
WOliam and Mary. Mr. Davis has also done gradu- 
ate work at ODU, UVA, and GWU. He was the first 
principal at Woodstock Elementary, Kellam High 
School, and Cox High School. 

During the 1982-83 school year, Mr. Davis ably 
met the challenge of providing leadership for the 
faculty and students at KJHS. Whether taking care 
of business in the office or supporting the many 
extra-curricular activities of KJHS students, he en- 
couraged pride and achievement and made this 
year a Hme to remember.

As student coordinator, Mr. Bob Booth has 
many responsibilities. These include preparing the 
budgets for student activities, providing supervi- 
sion at games, dances, and other school functions, 
maintaining the school activities calendar, and 
scheduling school assembly programs. This is his 
fourth year as student activities coordinator. 
Whether it was a game, or concert, a dance, or a 
dub meeting, Mr. Booth's work played a kev role in 
the success of the activitv. His efforts to keep our 
activites program running smoothly are appreci- 
ated by everyone at KJHS. 

During the past school year, Mr. Davis was aided by two quali- 
fied assistant principals, Ralph Sykes and Ron Keen. Their admin- 
istrative abilities helped create an environment in which KJHS 
students had many opportunities to learn and succeed. 

Mr. Sykes has many responsibilities at KJHS. He receives disci- 
pline referrals from teachers, and makes every effort to encourage 
students to improve their behavior so that they can do their best 
work in their classes. Mr. Sykes is also responsible for students' 
lockers and for the athletic program. Returning for his third year at 
KJHS, Mr. Sykes graduated from Atlantic Christian College and 
East Carolina University. He taught math at Kempsville High 
School and Kellam High School. He served as assistant principal at 
Bayside High School and at Kellam before coming to our school. 
Mr. Sykes enjoys sports and is a great supporter of the Braves. 

Like Mr. Sykes, Mr. Keen stays busy taking care of the responsi- 
bilities assigned to him. He is responsible for all scheduling, for 
transportation, and for issuing keys. Mr. Keen holds degrees from 
N.C. State and William and Mary. He is presently working on an 
advanced study certificate at ODU. He has taught math and sci- 
ence, and was assistant principal at Independence before coming 
to KJHS this year. He enjoys fishing, reading, and working cross- 
word puzzles. Kempsville Jr. High is fortunate to have Mr. Keen 
as a part of our fine team of administrators.

Over the past year, most every 
Brave has been involved with at least 
one of the clubs or activities at KJHS. 
Whether their interests were in mu- 
sic, drama, writing, or school govern- 
ment, there was something here for 
everyone. There were as many reasons 
for joining these clubs as there were 
students. A major reason was to be 
around students with mutual in- 
terests and talents. In this case, the 
clubs gave the students an opportuni- 
ty to learn more than they could in the 
classroojn. Another reason for partici- 
pating in these clubs was to further 
interests and take on responsibilities. 
Members of the Smoke Signal staff, 
for example, were responsible for spe- 
cific feature articles . Completing these 
articles gave them a feeling that they 
had contributed some of their time and 
talents to our school. Some students 
joined school clubs just to get away 
from the day to day routine. It gave 
them a chance to see the school as more 
than just a buildino filled with 
teachers and books. School clubs also 
taught students how to function in a 
group as far as contrihuting ideas, 
making group decisions, or being the 
leader of a group. 

Even those students not directly in- 
volved with a scliool organization Imi- 
efitted from their existence. The 
S.C.A. planned many activities that 
the entire school could be a part of, 
such as school dances and spirit days. 
The foreign language clubs planned a 
foreign language i^stival during the 
holiaay season. The festival intro- 
duced students to foreign cultures, 
foods, and dances. The drama club, 
orchestra, band, and chorus held per- 
formances that all students were in- 
vited to attend. 

The clubs and activities at KJHS 
contributed a great deal to our 1982- 
83 school year. Rounding out the 
overall junior high school experience, 
these activities gave the students at 
KJHS the time and opportunity to 
make a difference in our school.

MARK TIME . . . 

This past year has been very suc- 
cessful for the Marching Braves. 
The hard work began even before 
school started as band members 
attended a band camp in West 
Chester, Pennsylvania, and all 
Marching Braves began to learn 
drills and practice in August. The 
practicing continued into the 
school year, and the band was 
often seen working hard after 
school and during first bell. 

All of this practicing paid off, and 
the Marching Braves were able to 

perform at halftime of every home 
football game, bring a first and sec- 
ond place home from the Neptune 
Festival, attend a Halloween Pa- 
rade, and win first place at Wil- 
liamsburg's Christmas parade. 

The marching season ended, but 
more practicing was still ahead. 
Students prepared for Regional 
Band tr}'Outs, concerts, and District 
Festival. The band members were 
also busy with fund raisers to help 
pay for the bands' spring trip to a 

competition in Ocean City, Mary- 
land. In March the hours of practic- 
ing began again to prepare for 
Ocean City. The Marching Braves 
were directed by Emmet Forbes; 
head drum major, Latanya Cole- 
man; and drum majors, Stephanie 
Kim and Joni Swanberg. The 
Ocean City trip is scheduled for late 
April where the marching band, 
the concert band, and the au- 
xiliaries will compete. Best of luck 
to the KJHS Marching Braves.

The KJHS chapter of the National 
Junior Honor Society is made up of 
a group of people who have proven 
that they are honor students in 
many ways. Each and every one of 
these students are involved in 
many student activities and many 
of them hold leadership positions. 
In fact, it was very difficult this year 
to schedule a meeting when all 
members could attend. All of these 
students must have maintained a 
7.0 average for the eighth grade and 
the first semester of the ninth grade 
at KJHS. These members are 
chosen on the basis of four major 
qualities: leadership, service, citi- 
zenship, and academics. When a 
student has maintained the aca- 
demic average, he or she is given an 
application for membership. The 
applications are reviewed by a com- 
mittee of teachers and administra- 
tion, and the selection of the new 
members is made. A tapping cere- 
mony is held in the spring to induct 
the new members.

The foreign language department 
worked hard to introduce foreign cul- 
tures to their students this year. The de- 
partment and the students presented an 
exciting International Holiday Festival 
this past December. Each student 
brought a sample of either French, Ger- 
man, Spanish, or Latin food. German 
and Spanish dancers attended the festiv- 
al and entertained the students. The de- 
partment sponsored a foreign language 
week featuring a poster contest, French 
cooking contest, and a piflata contest. 
The Latin Club was very active this past 
year. They sold carnations for Hallo- 
ween, participated in the State Latin 
Convention in Roanoke and the Na- 
tional Latin Exams. Overall the foreign 
language department contributed to a 
very successful year at KJHS.

As we look back over the past year, we sadly 
think of how fast time flew by. It all began with 
the "theme" party in August, when the 1983 
Venture Staff became acquainted and made 
some of their first decisions. We remember the 
receipt books, and posters completed in prepara- 
tion for yearbook sales, and then the week of 
sales was gone with the first deadline just 
around the corner. The layouts, the copy, the 
pictures, the croppers, and the boxes were 
shifted around until an empty room was found 
during third bell. Whenever anyone passed by 
our "room", we were seen hard at work trying to 
meet our deadlines and commitments and decid- 
ing what to leave in, what to leave out. But if that 
same person were to enter the room we all be- 
came deathly silent. All yearbook goings-on 
were kept confidential so that the Venture '83 
could be a big surprise.

cover, the painting of the gno

fore the sun rose, came more memories and 
progress toward the completion of the '83 Ven- 
ture. Probably the most asked question by all 
eleven of us was, "Will we ever get through in 
time?" When March 9, 1983 arrived, it was a 
happy day for us all. Lots of long, hard hours of 
work and worry had gone into the production of 
this book. We were relieved, excited and 
proud. The finishing touches were put on 
the book and the final deadline was 
met. At that point we all knew 
that it was just a matter of 
"time" . . .

The Keuipsville Jr. High School 
athletic department is a well-rounded 
organization of teams that exhibited a 
tremendous amount of ability , enthu- 
siasm, and drive during the three 
sports seasons of '82-83. Jltese teams 
were made up of some of the best 
athletes in the city and they displayed 
determination and exhibited excell- 
ence and true team spirit throughout 
the year. 

The sports program has taught us 
the value of competition and has pro- 
vided an arena where a student can 
experience the exhilaration of win- 
ning and the bitterness of defeat. To 
accept victory in its glory and shun 
defeat only to return with a positive 
attitude, marked the total commit- 
ments of well-rounded athletes. These 
athletes often learned from mistakes 
and improved skills and techniques 
they acquired from their peers. 

This year's athletic teams had an 
unusual spirit. Some new coaches, 
some experienced coaches helped bring 
out this Brave spirit. 

The life of an athlete demanded 
grueling hours of practice, prepara- 
tion and dedication. With each point 
scored, each ball hit, and each move- 
ment performed correctly, came the 
feeling of accomplishment and self sat- 
isfaction. To these athletes willing to 
strive for perfection, no obstacle was 
too large to stand in their way.

Last spring the 1982-83 KJHS cheering squad 
was chosen and from that point, the hard work 
began. By early summer the girls were practicing 
diligently to perfect their cheering skills and abili- 
ties. Under the able direction and supen.'ision of 
sponsor, Mary Gamble, the girls were ready for the 
fall season. Throughout the school vear, the cheer- 
leaders actively showed support for the teams at 
KJHS. At almost everv game. Miss Gamble could 
be seen sitting in the stands giving loval support to 
all Braves' teams. They aU sacrificed their time and 
gave up social actixnties to travel to away games. In 
addition, the cheerleaders showed recognition for 
team members bv decorating lockers, making post- 
ers, and organizing pep rallies. 

The KJHS cheering squad approached the end of 
each season with just as much spirit and pep as 
they began it. The cheerleaders supported our 
Braves through thick and thin. The 1982-83 cheer- 
leaders were key to the spirit exhibited by the en- 
tire student body. They were able to promote this 
spirit and help us all Get Fired Up.

The 1982 KempsvUle Braves football team had an 
excellent year, finishing with a record of 6 and 1. 
Long, hard hours of practice after school payed off 
for our Braves' offense as they produced such valu- 
able players as: Hamilton, Reece, Reid, Wilson, 
Briggs and Freeman. This combination of players 
scored 15.7 points per game and brought our team 
within one touchdown of a city championship. The 
Braves' defense only allowed 5.7 points per game 
with such valuable players as: Bannister, Becker, 
Ford, Donahue, and Weygant. With the help of 
Coach Hicks and Coach Flannigan, the 1982 foot- 
ball team proved that they were Touchdoum Bound.

Sharon Jennings, tied for third place in the city 
after a very successful season. The team was led by 
captains Anne Slaughter and Kathleen McCabe. 
After tieing their first five games, the Braves didn't 
give up and came back to win their last two games. 
The offense was led by Kathleen McCabe, Liz

The 1982-83 boy's basketball team created a new and 
exciting atmosphere in the gym at every game — home 
and away. These bovs, coached by Mr. Chowns, were 
able to finish a fantastic season with a record of 13-0 to 
take the regular season city championship as well as the 
1983 tournament championship. The team worked well 
together toward this common goal. Everyone on the 
team played hard in practice and helped the other mem- 
bers of the team to improve. Some members of the team 
may not have had as much playing time as others, but 
they cheered the team on with enthusiasm. Mr'. 
Chowns and Mr. Workman used words of encourage- 
ment and always knew how to get the boys "up" for the 
big game. The team was led by the starting five, Reid, 
Freeman, Mungo, Wilson and Briggs, but the bench was 
also strong to help back them up. These outstanding 
ninth graders will be missed, but returning players 
Whitehurst, Shulte and Fairchild will look good for next 
year to begin the building of another team and to prove 
that Teamwork is important For Triumph.

regular season with a record of 5-5. Throughout the 
entire season, the girls demonstrated teamwork, 
spirit, sportsmanship, and ability. They practiced 
numerous hours after school to perfect the skills 
and fundamentals of the game. Miss Allen, the 
coach, did a very good job of working with the 
players and encouraging each and every team 
member. Key players such as Karen McCabe, 
Kathleen McCabe, Amy Harrell, Susan Hendricks, 
Kim Theriault and Laura Lee led the team on the 
court. Building on the experience gained during 
the season, returning players Teresa Platte,

The 1982 baseball team finished an exciting 
season last spring as city champions. They 
progressed through their season with seven 
wins and three losses. Due to bad weather the 
championship game had to be played on the 
same day as the KJHS spring sports banquet. 
The boys beat Princess Anne with a score of 
nine to four and arrived at the sports banquet 
with the championship trophy. The combina- 
tion of returning players and new talent from 
the seventh and eighth grade contributed to 
the success of the team. The boys, coached by 
Mr. Zontini, put in many long, hard hours of 
practice. This was the third team that Mr. "Z" 
led to a city championship. A number of valu- 
able members of this team such as Fout, Whit- 
tier, Engle, Radigan, Francis, Larmore, Dank- 
myer, Catalono and Stanley, are being lost by 
the Braves to the Chiefs. For the 1983 season, 
Mr. Zontini, who has retired from his position 
as coach, will also be missed. New coach Mr.

The 1982 softball team ended their season 
with a 5-5 record. The girls, coached by Mrs. 
Johnson, put in many long, hard hours of after 
school practice. The entire team worked well 
together and demonstrated determination and 
excellent attitudes. A number of valuable team 
leaders such as T.J. Whitehurst, Kellie West, 
Dawn Dean, Linda Gard, Susannah Baxter, and 
Julie Wilson are being lost to KHS for the 1983 
spring season. As coach, Mrs. Johnson will also 
be missed, but will be replaced by Miss Taylor, a 
new teacher to Kempsville this year. Miss Taylor 
and returning players Karen McCabe, Laura 
McLaughlin, Susan Hendricks, Paige Hawkins, 
Lori Britton, and Michelle Dorland can look for- 
ward to a fine '83 spring season. The girls dem- 
onstrated that Getting Into the Swing of Things 
could be done with teamwork.

For many of the players who make the boys 
soccer team each spring here at KJHS it is the 
culmination of year round play. The boys team 
here at Kempsville Jr. begins their hard work and 
anticipation in early March and conclude the sea- 
son at the end of May. The 1982 team finished the 
season with a 5-2 record. The team as a whole, 
displayed great skill, teamwork and spirit. Mr. 
Spruill, the coach, proved to be so successful be- 
cause of the confidence he placed in his team and 
the encouragement he gave each player. The team 
was led by excellent offensive players as Bondur- 
ant, De Martino, Martinez, and Vaughn. The lead- 
ing defensive players were Collins, Schorr, and 
Sherwood. The returning players to the team this 
year are Hamilton, Walker, May, and VanDekel. 
The boys put it all together to show that our Braves 
Get a Kick Out of Soccer.

Both the scoreboard and the team's enthusiasm were 
attributes of the 1981-82 spring season success of the 
Kempsville Jr. girl's soccer team. They finished their 
season with a 4-2-1 record while displaying sports- 
manship, team spirit and cooperation. Mrs. Jennings, 
the coach, did an excellent job working with the players 
on the fundamentals of the game. The team was led to a 
good season offensively by: Beth Cousins, ChrisH Dona- 
hoo, Chris Porterfield. Outstanding defensive players 
were Paige Kelly, Lauren Roper, Sarah Silseth, and 
Marueen Thompson. The talents of these team mem- 
bers will be missed but the returning players can look 
forward to a successful spring season as they work to 
Soc' it to the other teams in the city.

Kempsville's track team was off and running with a 
strong turnout of 24 runners for the 1982 season. The 
girls worked extremely hard and had superior talent. 
The outstanding abilities of Kim Nelson, Reina George, 
Lori Brandon, Renee Lavely, and Beth Pendleton put 
the girl's track team at a high third place and only a few 
points from being the city champions. Even though 
these girls will be missed, there are shll the young hope- 
fuls such as Karen Chasse, Laura Lee, Kim demons, 
and Jennifer Ross who will also have the same chance. 
This was Ms. Allen's first year coaching track, but the 
entire team can back her up and say that she did a 
fantastic job. Her spirit and enthusiasm will make it 
much easier for the girls to Hurdle To Their Goal.

Not just fun and games, joining the 1982 track 
team meant endless hours of after school practice, 
sore muscles, battling fierce competition, enduring 
defeat, and rising again to triumph. The KJHS boys 
track team practiced every afternoon four days a 
week from early spring to the end of the school 
year. Jogging through mud and rain became a com- 
mon experience, but for those willing to pay the 
price, it was all worth it. With the helpful and 
encouraging coaching of Mr. Hassell, the team had 
a successful season. Johnny Tincher, Greg Remy, 
city mile champion; Joe Brewer with a school 
record in the 100 yard dash; and Bobby Villa-Lobes 
were team leaders. The team looks forward to 
another great season with returning team mem- 
bers Bill Becker, Salbert Salang, Matt Chapman, 
Brooke Donahue, and Jeff Cohen. Together these 
athletes had Flying Feet.

This year the Kempsville 
coaches have selected Laura Lee as 
M the female athlete of the year. 

* Laura has demonstrated a desire 

for excellence and achievement, 
superior athletic ability, and a pos- 
itive attitude during her time of 
participation in KJHS sports. 
Laura was a member of the field 
hockey team during the 1981 and 1982 seasons. She 
lettered in basketball during the 1982-83 winter 
sports season, contributing a great deal to the suc- 
cesses of the Lady Braves. Outstanding in both 
defensive and offensive play, she was a strong 
rebounder and produced many turnovers by our 
opponents. Laura also participated in KJHS 'track 
during the 1981 and the 1982 spring seasons. At the 
1982 city tournament at Green Run High, she took 
third place in the city in the 880 meter run. Because 
of her performance on the field, track, and court, 
and her positive contribution to the morale of KJHS 
teams, Laura is a deserving recipient of this honor. 

The athlete who stands head 
and shoulders above all others at 
KJHS is J.R. Reid. J.R. has partici- 
pated in the athletic program at 
our school for three years, and has 
demonstrated superior athletic 
ability, leadership qualities, and 
good sportsmanship. He was a 
member of the football team for 
two years, and was a starting captain during his 
ninth grade year. During the 1982 fall season, he 
led the Braves to a 6-1 record. J.R. showed excep- 
tional ability on the basketball court. The captain of 
the citv regular season and tournament cham- 
pions, he was a key factor in building a 13-0 record. 
J.R. was also a member of the basketball team dur- 
ing his seventh and eighth grade years. J.R. also 
lettered in track during his eighth and ninth grade 
years. Because of his extraordinary performances 
on the basketball court and his outstanding con- 
tributions to other KJHS sports teams, J.R. is a 
deserving recipient of the high honor of Athlete of 
the Year.

All to often we were not even aware 
of the passage of time. The events of 
our scnoolday fell into a rigid routine 
and even when it seemed the day 
would never end, in looking back, we 
realize that the year has gone much too 

Time together . . . with time to 
share. As our time slips away, golden 
friendships grow deeper. These are the 
outward signs of the passage of time; 
the ticking of a clock, the running of 
sand in an hour glass, the rising and 
setting of the sun. Together we sfiared 
times for relaxation and laughter, 
quiet moments for deepest thinking, 
times for questioning, and many 
hours of work and study. Although 
learning is important, the soul of 
KJHS is in the people involved in our 
school and the friendships that unite 
us. There may be more beautiful 
times, but this one was ours. 

We now have one last time, one last 
chance to take a look back on the things 
we've grown to love throughout the 
year. They were the songs that seemed 
like our songs and the times when 
Miltons seemed like heaven because 
you knew that special person would be 
there. These things made us complete, 
they made us who we are. They made 
us realize that school wasn't just a 
learning process but a loving process. 

The end of the year, it's an end and 
a beginning, a time of happiness and a 
time of tears, a moment of pride and a 
moment of regret, a time to think of all 
the things that have happened in a few 
golden years and a time to dream of 
future years. It's a moment of wishing 
that all the great times were ahead 
instead of behind. The end of the year, 
it's a time when we must leave the 
people and school we've grown to 
love, but take with us a love we've 
grown to know. 

And now that it's all over, in look- 
ing back we realize that it was a very 
special year, indeed.

As we change, so do our likes 
and emotions. The time we have 
spent together this year will al- 
ways be remembered, and those 
memories were made special by 
so many things that we associate 
with the 1982-83 school year. 
Along with the faces of friends 
and teachers we spent a great deal 
of time with, the 1983 Venture 
Staff wanted to record some smal- 

ler, often overlooked things. So in 
February, a poll was taken to de- 
cide among the student body 
what helped make this year so 
memorable. The top three choices 
in each category are included be- 
low. As we look back on the year, 
we realize how quickly things 
change. No matter what has 
changed, these times will never 
be forgotten.

It is tradition each year at Kempsville 
Jr. to select the ninth grade supersuper- 
latives. Each ninth grader was given the 
chance to vote for the boy and girl that he 
felt should be selected for the categories 
listed. This recognizes these students 
with special interests, talents, and traits 
that make them stand out above all 
others. The pictures of the winners and 
the names of the runners-up are in- 
cluded on these pages. On behalf of the 
student body, we would like to con- 
gratulate "YOU". Each of you are "su- 
per" and we hope this will help make 
this TIME special for you.

KJHS . . . 

The deserving receipients of the 1983 
service awards are Anne Slaughter and 
Perry Pascual. During their time at KJHS, 
Anne and Perry have displayed keen in- 
terest in student activities and have al- 
ways presented positive viewpoints as 
they carried out the many responsibili- 
ties they accepted. 

The president of the SCA and the edi- 
tor of the yearbook, Anne is also a mem- 
ber of thelvJational Jr. Honor Society and 
the Science Club. She was captain of the 
field hockey team, and also lettered in 
soccer. Perry has served as vice- 
president of the SCA. He is also a mem- 
ter of the debate team, the Science Club, 
the Latin Club, and the National Jr. Hon-

volved in service activities in the com- 

Anne and Perry are to be commended 
for their excellence in the areas of 
academics, citizenship, and service. 
Their diligence, enthusiasm, and pride 
in being Braves have had a positive effect 
on botn students and faculty as we all 
worked together this year. It is no sur- 
prise that the faculty has chosen to 
present these two outstanding leaders 
with the high honor of the Service 

Being the editor of the 1983

job for Anne, and Perry 
always had his hands full as
